Life Sciences Research for Lifelong Health

Laetitia Chauve

Genetics and its interaction with the environment have always fascinated me. I studied biology at the University Pierre and Marie Curie and Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, after which I did my first year of master internship in the Morimoto lab at Northwestern University. There I discovered the great model organism C. elegans and the beauty of in vivo monitoring of stress reporters. I did my second year of master internship in the Bessereau lab at Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris where I first came across the powerful genome-engineering tools based on the mobilization of the exogenous Mos1 transposon. During my PhD, I have been very interested in understanding why the stress transcription factor HSF-1 is essential for C. elegans development. I am very excited to have recently joined the Casanueva lab as a postdoc to investigate the basis for inter-individual variation in lifespan. Outside the lab, I enjoy playing listening to gipsy-jazz, playing bass guitar and bass recorder and salsa dancing.
